Mahindra & Mahindra has announced that their Bolero Power+ model is now BS-VI ready. The new BS-VI Mahindra Bolero Power+ has also received a certification from ICAT (International Centre for Automotive Technology) towards its BS-VI technology.
The company will introduce the new BS-VI compliant Bolero Power+ sometime in early 2020. Apart from the Bolero SUV, Mahindra is also getting ready on the BS-VI technology for its other models available in India as well.
Rajan Wadhera, President, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, stated,
"As the first milestone in our BS-VI readiness journey, we are delighted to get the BS-VI certification for the Bolero Power+. The Bolero is one of our highest selling SUVs and has been the first UV (Utility Vehicle) to be certified as BS-VI ready by the ICAT."
Apart from the BS-VI ready announcement, Mahindra has also added a number of safety updates on the Bolero Power+. This includes airbags, high-speed alert system, driver and front passenger seatbelt reminders, manual override for the central locking system and reverse parking sensors.
Mahindra also offers the Bolero Power+ with ABS, anti-glare IRVM, digital immobilizer and front disc brakes as well. Mahindra had silently launched the ABS version of the Bolero Power+ in India sometime back, with a starting price of Rs 7.56 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
The Bolero Power+ is powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine producing 70bhp and 195Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The standard Bolero, however, comes with a larger 2.5-litre diesel engine. It produces 63bhp and 195Nm of torque; mated to the same manual gearbox.
Mahindra will also introduce a new update to the Bolero soon. This will make it compliant with the BNVSAP and crash test norms in the country; implemented from the 1st of October 2019.
Apart from the Bolero itself, Mahindra is also working on updating its entire range of products for the BS-VI emission norms. Spy pics of multiple Mahindra products have been leaked online, undergoing extensive testing ahead of their respective launches.
Mahindra is also set to launch a new Thar in the Indian market. The new Mahindra Thar will launch in India at the 2020 Auto Expo. It will come with a host of updates, including design changes, mechanical revision and an updated feature & equipment list as well.
